More "As the Crow Flies" than "A Matter of Honour...
on 15 September 2004
Having been a keen reader of Archer novels in the past but totally un-interested in reading his prison diaries, I wondered if any of his novels had passed me by in the last couple of years, so I was delighted when I discovered Sons of Fortune. I think some other reviewers have been slightly harsh but after all, it is a matter of taste. If you compare this book with A Matter of Honour or even the Eleventh Commandment you may well be disappointed, because it's not a gripping chase novel, nor does it hold any of the intrigue of his inside stories of the CIA. It does hold up well against As the Crow flies, however - simply a very good story which you're loathe to put down. Read it - you may well be very pleasantly surprised. I was.
